'Meet your Peers' Food

As you may know, our taste buds respond to four different types of flavors—sweet, salty, sour, and bitter—but some of us seem more inclined to reach for chocolate over chips than others.

So what’s behind that insatiable sweet or salty tooth? A lot of it is genetic. Our DNA determines how sensitive we are to certain flavors—those of us with a sweet tooth may have a higher sweet threshold, for example, so we crave more sugar to satisfy our taste buds.

So, the question of the week:

Salty snacks :pizza: or sweet stuff :cake:?

Please do not hesitate to share your ideas :wink:


It’s a really hard choice for me, but I would choose salty snacks. Crisps, pizza, burgers make me much happier but less healthy :grin:

And what about you?


Super tough call for me! I’m really big on chocolate, and I’m afraid I’ve got even kind of an addiction in this regard :sweat_smile: But at the same time I can’t stand insipid food, so I make sure to improve it with salt every time.

But if I have to make a choice, then I vote for sweet stuff :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
